Chris McCarron, hall of fame jockey and executive director of the North American Racing Academy,. has been named the grand marshal of the 34th Annual Alltech Lexington St. Patrick’s Parade to be held on Saturday, March 16, in downtown Lexington. In naming him, the Bluegrass Irish Society board said, “Chris is a world-class athlete and a world-class person. He typifies all that is good about our Irish culture. Among his many achievements is the Mike Venezia Memorial Award for ‘extraordinary sportsmanship and citizenship’.”
Since 1977, AASM accreditation has been the gold standard by which the medical community and the public evaluate sleep medicine services. The evolution of portable diagnostic technology used outside the sleep center and recent policies related to out of center testing has shaped the diagnosis of patients with sleep apnea. In February of 2011, the AASM began accrediting sleep facilities for Out of Center Sleep Testing for adult patients. For more information about the Lexington Clinic Sleep Center, call 859.258.4NAP(4627). Lexington Clinic is Central Kentucky’s oldest and largest group practice, with more than 225 providers offer-

In addition to winning the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness on Alysheba, McCarron has four other Triple Crown victories, nine Breeders’ Cup victories and has won virtually every major race in North America. After 28 years in racing, he retired as the all-time leader in purse earnings with more than $264 million in winnings.

Fayette Heating & Air gives to Komen
Fayette Heating & Air presented a check of over $4,500 to Komen Lexington as part of its “Giving Back” program. The “Giving Back” program was initiated by Fayette Heating & Air in 2012 as a way to consistently give back to the community. Fayette Heating & Air has two custom “wrapped” residential service vans. One van wrapped in pink represents Komen Lexington and the other, wrapped in yellow, for the Lexington Humane Society. Ten percent of the proceeds of each van are given back to the charity each quarter. Fayette Heating & Air has committed to these two worthy organizations for a five-year period. “It’s a way for us to consistently give back to Komen Lexington and the Lexington Humane Society. If you need service and one of these vans make your service call, you’re making a donation!” said Bret Melrose, president of Fayette Heating & Air. “At the end of the five years, we hope to donate over $100,000. That helps find a cure!” Fayette Heating & Air is headquartered in Lexington, KY and since 1971 has been serving the HVAC, heating and cooling needs of Central Kentucky. The Lexington Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® is dedicated to combating breast cancer at every front. Up to 75 percent of the Affiliate’s net income goes toward funding grants to local Kentucky hospitals and community organizations in a 58 county area, providing breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment programs for medically underserved women.
To All Our Valued Customers, Readers & Friends, Easter eggs are special eggs that are often given to celebrate Easter or springtime. Easter eggs are common during Eastertide as they symbolize the empty tomb of Jesus.Though an egg appears to be like the stone of a tomb, a bird hatches from it with life; similarly, the Easter egg, for Christians, is a reminder that Jesus rose from the grave, and that those who believe will also experience eternal life. This month’s cover feature is NorthEast Christian Church, inviting everyone to come worship Easter Sunday, March 31. Also in March, there will be tons of fun for the kids with a Easter Treasure Hunt March 23. For the gown-ups, learn about creating a “healthy organizational culture” up close with Andy Stanley and Craig Groeschel. All this and more on page 15 inside.

Well-known marketing pro joins Rainmaker Mary Ellen Slone, or MES as she is best known, brings her outside-of–the-box thinking and creative talent to Rainmaker Advertising, complementing the local-agency’s already strong reputation for success. With the encouragement of her mentor, Warren Rosenthal (who was once her ‘boss’ at Jerrico’s in-house marketing group) Slone founded “MER Advertising” a one-woman marketing boutique, 25+ years ago. Subsequently, under the name of Meridian Communications, she guided that agency into being recognized as one of the leading creative shops in the region. At the same time, Slone has been vitally involved with a significant list of not-forprofit entities, to which she has contributed her time and energy – and shared the talents,

Guide available to help plan Writers’ Day acitvities in different communities A Kentucky Writers’ Day planning guide is available as a free download from the Kentucky Arts Council for schools, libraries, municipalities, community and faith-based organizations, local governments, businesses, the media and other community groups to plan celebrations for Kentucky Writers’ Day. Kentucky Writers’ Day is an annual event that celebrates the commonwealth’s strong literary tradition and the anniversary of the birth of Kentucky native Robert Penn Warren, the first poet laureate of the United States and winner of three Pulitzer Prizes. “The writers who have built the state’s rich literary history are the reason Kentucky is recognized as an important contributor to the literary arts on the international stage,” said Lori Meadows, arts council executive director. “Kentucky
Writers’ Day is an excellent opportunity for residents of the commonwealth to celebrate the writers who live and work in their own hometowns, and our planning guide can help.” This year’s event will be April 24 at 11 a.m. in the Capitol Rotunda in Frankfort, and features the induction of the next state poet laureate. April 24 is designated as Kentucky Writers’ Day by the Kentucky General Assembly. The date is the birthday of Warren, from Guthrie, Ky., who had the rare distinction of winning Pulitzer Prizes for fiction as well as poetry.

Fayette Heating & Air gives to Komen
Fayette Heating & Air presented a check of over $3,500 to The Lexington Humane Society as part of its “Giving Back” program. The “Giving Back” program was initiated by Fayette Heating & Air in 2012 as a way to consistently give back to the community. Fayette Heating & Air has two custom “wrapped” residential service vans. One van wrapped in yellow represents the Lexington Humane Society and the other, wrapped in pink, for Komen Lexington. 10% of the proceeds of each van are given back to the charity each quarter. Fayette Heating & Air has committed to these two worthy organizations for a five year period. “It’s a way for us to consistently give back to the Lexington Humane Society and Komen Lexington. If you need service and one of these vans make your service call, you’re making a donation!” said Bret Melrose, president of Fayette Heating & Air. “At the end of the 5 years, we hope to donate over $100,000. Those funds will help lots of animals!” Fayette Heating & Air is headquartered in Lexington, KY and since 1971 has been serving the HVAC, heating and cooling needs of Central Kentucky. The Lexington Humane Society advocates the compassionate treatment of animals; educates the community on responsible, lifelong pet ownership; and promotes adoption as the best option when searching for a new pet. They are a non-profit humane agency completely reliant upon private donations and community support.

The ABCs of Omega 3s
here are many health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. Research shows that the omega-3s EPA and DHA can boost heart health and lower triglycerides, and that omega-3 fatty acids may help with conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, depression, just to name a few. But just what are omega-3 fatty acids and how much do you need? And what do all those abbreviations -- EPA, DHA, and ALA -- really mean? Photo by: Earlane Cox

Non-Surgical Medical Weight Loss
Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Basics Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids which are needed for our bodies to work effectively. These essential fatty acids are not produced in the body and are derived from our diet. There are several types of omega-3 fatty acids. Two crucial ones — EPA and DHA — are primarily found in certain fish, such as anchovies, bluefish, herring, mackerel, salmon (wild has more omega-3s than farmed), sardines, sturgeon, lake trout, and tuna. Plants like flax contain ALA, an omega-3 fatty acid that is partially converted into DHA and EPA in the body. Algae oil often provides only DHA. Experts say that DHA and EPA — from fish and fish oil — have better established health benefits than ALA. DHA and EPA are found together only in fatty fish and algae. DHA can also be found on its own in algae, while flaxseed and plant sources of omega-3s provide ALA -- a precursor to EPA and DHA, and a source of energy. Good food sources of ALA — which is converted into omega-3 fatty acids in the body — include walnuts, flax and flaxseed oil, canola oil, olive oil, and soybean oil. While foods containing omega-3 fatty acids have health benefits, some, like oils and nuts, can be high in calories, and should be eaten in
moderation. Omega-3s have a number of health benefits. Here are just a few: • Help control hunger. Omega 3s helps you feel fuller longer and decrease carbohydrate cravings. • Promote a healthy metabolism. Omega 3s help maintain a steady metabolism and gives your body the boost it needs to get rid of unwanted, excess body fat. • Carry good fat soluble vitamins. Essential fatty acids are good transporters of the fat soluble vitamins (A,D,E,K) which are necessary for proper vision and healthy bones and muscles. • Protect and insulate vital organs. Good fat is needed to act as a cushion and help insulate and protect vital organs. • Cardiovascular health. Omega-3 fatty acids appear to lower the overall risk of death from heart disease. • Rheumatoid arthritis. Fish oil supplements (EPA+DHA) significantly reduce stiffness and joint pain. Omega-3 supplements also seem to boost the effectiveness of anti-inflammatory drugs. • Depression. Researchers have found that consuming foods with high levels of omega-3s may decrease levels of depression and help reduce the depressive symptoms of bipolar disorder. • Prenatal health. Studies show that EPA and DHA supplementation during pregnancy boosts the health of pregnant women and the visual and neurological development in infants. • Asthma. A diet high in omega 3s reduces inflammation, a key component in asthma.
• Choose the right fish. Some fish, including wild swordfish, tilefish and shark, are more likely to have higher levels of mercury, PCBs, or other toxins. Farm-raised fish of any type may also have higher levels of contaminants. Children and pregnant women should avoid these fish entirely. Others should eat no more than 7 ounces of these fish a week. Smaller fish, like wild trout and wild salmon, are safer. • Consider eating more free-range poultry and beef. Free-range animals have much higher levels of omega-3s than typical, grain-fed animals. • Consider a supplement like fish oil capsules or algae oil. Fish oil contains both EPA and DHA. Algae oil contains DHA and may be a good option for those not tolerant to fish or for vegetarians. • Talk to your doctor before using a supplement. Before you start using any supplement, have a discussion with your doctor. He or she may have specific recommendations, or warnings, depending on your health and other medications that may be prescribed.
